Transparent flag. Everyone can see that Bitcoin is not associated with a certain party (color) Smiley

It's easy to print a flag on transparent surface (no harder than on fibber surface).

What about the printed image?

This looks crappy (illustrator started pissing me off so I quit) but maybe has concepts others can use



Main things are implementing the block chain somehow and an unusual shape (not necessarily the one I made)


* edit, sorry for large size...


Also, I think bitcoin needs an animal mascot. Something found worldwide like a rat.

I like all of these ideas. Although I don't know if rat is a good choice.  We should resurrect Clippy lol

While this looks cool, I think its really important for a flag to be easy to produce.  Thats why all of the world flags use only a few solid colors and generally simple shapes with straight lines.

I am sure, that European Union stars are inapropriate in this flag.
Just imagine that each star in the circle is replaced with these images:


And you will feel what i do feel about this image

Could you tell us what the demonstration is protesting or supporting?

There seems to be unanimous support for the latin phrase "Vis in Numeris" (trust in numbers) which has at least two excellent allusions (1) strong mathematics and (2) people power. If it carries the same message, perhaps you could translate that into Russian:

Доверие номера
B i t c o i n

Ahh, I thought about that when i was almost done making it. I might simplify the project to take all that into acount. I guess it might work as a nice banner/background for someone Cheesy

Very nice so far!
I'd replace this Bitcoin coin with the simple Bitcoin sign (as on the orange flag sample) or the simple gold coin and use a different font for the bottom text.

I like this one too.  I think gold is my favorite color for the flag so far.

I still like the transparent flag idea.  I don't think I've seen that before. A gold B on a mesh/transparent background would look awesome, I'm not sure how well it would hold up outside.

First of all, a flag as people understood it in the past and still understand it today is a graphical representation of historical and moral values shared by a group of people, be it a nation, an organization or a church. They're usually linked to a specific territory. A flag has to be accepted by some form of (a centralized) government or at least a majority (or be forced upon a group of people, as it happened countless times in history). New flags, like the flag of EU, are more of an advertisement really. Since BitCoin is an ex-territorial, decentralized form of money minted (mined) by individuals, no symbol will become a flag unless it is accepted by miners and users, hence the BTC symbol - there are two: the Dollar-like B and the #B. Even though the Dollar-B is being used more frequently, there is still no agreement in the community on the currency symbol.
I personally like the #B symbol better, because it emphasizes the mathematical foundation on which the BTC is based and doesn't send out a "something like Dollar" or an "anti-Dollar" message, but rather a "completely now quality" statement.
Lets look at the symbolism for a second. There was and is no need to die for BTC, no bloody red then. No need to declare a war against anyone (the enemies will defeat themselves :-) ), no need for black. No connotations with nature - no green. The commonly used colors we've got left are: blue, white and yellow. Blue stands for freedom, reason, prosperity. White stands for innocence and purity, transparency. Yellow represents wealth and justice.

My proposals are square, because I find it more "perfect" than a rectangle (even in golden proportions) and it can be used both ways, that is as a conventional flag-on-the-rod and as "old combat style" flag. I used mainly blue and white, because I find BitCoin has more to do with mind and intellect than any other currency. Yellow and gold are used as the advertisements and "good luck charms" really. The circle and a disk, through their resemblence of the sun (gold) is instantly associated with money, but also symbolizes the rotation of BTC (and is a wink to central banking). They're all very simple. A flag has to be easily memorializeable and recognizable from afar. The middle one (white disk on blue background) is my personal favorite.

I realized that bitcoin is one of the only currencies without a flag so I decided to upload this design at:

http://bitflag.org/

Let me know if people prefer the red one ... Smiley
